Toronto, CA (February 26, 2013) -- Eastwood Guitars is determined to find the “World’s Ugliest Guitar”. To help make this decision, Eastwood is crowd sourcing the opinions of guitar players from around the globe with an interactive voting system at facebook.com/EastwoodGuitars1.
This voting page offers a choice of eight of the world’s most extreme mistakes in mass produced guitars from the past 50 years. Round one is underway, this collection focuses on what may be the worst (or best) of the kooky retro vintage era including “the Soviet answer to the Telecaster” – 1969 Tonika EGS-650; the 1970 Czechoslovakian rocker – the Jolana Star IX and a crazy concoction from Italian guitar genius Antonio Pioli – the Wandré Sacrabeo.
Just to make the voting even more fun, Eastwood Guitars has announced that the guitar with the most votes on May 31, 2013 at 11:59 pm (EST) will be recreated in a limited production run of 24 numbered guitars. One lucky voter will win their own copy of this Eastwood “World’s Ugliest Guitar #1” or their choice of any Eastwood Guitar.
“To say these oddballs are ugly is a little harsh," said Mike Robinson, President and founder of Eastwood Guitars, "they are all over the top and we know that a lot of our fans would love to have any one of these guitars. After all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”
